, connecticut, new york. >> it's like the obama donรง or closet. >> and orrin hatch made that point this year, a republican senator. he said the amt hurts them more than us. >> they don't have to worry about it. they think that's their leverage. >> i want to think about other things discussed once we get past the tax rates, and i want to hear -- listen to president obama today talking about smflt other things, the spending cuts that are involved and what they're dealing with here. >> i think there's a recognition that maybe they can accept some rate increases as long as it's combined with serious entitlement reform and additional spending cuts. if we can get the leadership on the republican side to take that framework, to acknowledge that reality, then the numbers actually aren't that far apart. another way of putting this is, we can probably solve this in about a week. it's not that tough. >> chris, there's the president saying he's ready to do serious entitlement reform and additional spending cuts, and no one seems to be noticing that. >> yeah. you know, i just talked about that. >> entitl
in the obama era. the one new tax that he did propose is on the superrism rich with regard to dividends on stocks. what you are talking about is that it is written by so many rich people. labor is harder, and you care about that money more. the obama proposal beyond what we are talking about goes after those dividends and that is a way to fight economic equality right now. >> we tax labor higher than we tax capitol. the republicans believe it does, they believe the higher you tax something the more you are discouraging it. there is bill crystal asking why do we want to tax labor more than capitol? that is the question. >> it is interesting. you are are seeing rank and file members of the party. you are starting to see the troops fall away. what would happen if for instance the senate bill were to be voted on in the house? >> they want to do it. and it would pass. we would have to get into these other questions. >> polls favoring the president in his approach and the outcome that he wants. and the polls i don't think that rush are limbaugh is reading those polls. >> there is no way to co
is president obama may end up overseeing one of the most progressive eras in american history. the news that the supreme court is set to take up the issue of marriage equality is inconclusive. it bodes well for an america that aims to treat its set zens equally under the law. most republicans know this, and if they don't, history is a useful guide. in 1967, 16 states banned interracial marriage when the court legalized the union of men and women, regardless of their skin color. in 1954, 17 states had segregated school systems when the court declared in brown versus board of education that separate was not in fact equal. and in 1973 when roe v wade was decided, abortion was legal in only four states. given the court's historic inclination to favor expansion of freedoms, even when public opinion is not on its side, it would seem plausible the justices will conform what a majority believe is right and up hold the constitutionality of marriage equality. if this is in fact the result, president obama will guide one of the last remaining civil rights battles to completion. a moment that may c
or are party's new standard. it is president obama's first term that may strangely pale in comparison with his second. for republicans to get in on the game, they must acknowledge that the country has changed, and so too must they, ideally with full hearts and good will. as the president has said countless times the arc of the look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, vision changes or eye p
. president obama and speaker boehner met privately yesterday. nbc news first read team makes this point. if the plan is to get something passed by friday, december 21, right before the christmas holiday, then the legislation has to be written by december 18th and that means that obama and boehner must reach a deal by december 14th, 15th if there is going to be a deal. so the time for posturing and pr is over. a new political poll shows that likely voters support the president's tax increase on the upper brackets. 60% favor raising taxes on households that earn more than $250,000. 64% favor raising taxes on large corporations. 33 oppose. the poll asked likely voters, do you believe that if we raise taxes on households that earn over $250,000 per year, it will have a negative impact on the economy. 38% said yes. 58% got it right and said no. today president obama outlined the deficit reduction legislation he would sign into law. >> what you need is a package that keeps taxes where they are for middle class families, we make some stuff spending cuts on things that we don't need, and then w
to what rush said. >> what we got today was a seminar on how to surrender. obama is going to get what he wants. we're using his language. we're now calling new taxes revenues. we have accepted the premise that new revenues will result in greater tax receipts going forward. they must feel so squished, so defeated, so universally disliked. >> governor dean, they're still far apart, democrats and republicans, but it's worth pointing out how far the democrats have moved since the election it to where they are today. they left that rush limbaugh thinking far behind. >> it's a good thing, because rush limbaugh is nowhere near the mainstream of the american people. i'm also worried about the defense cuts. i think we need to make the cuts. we haven't cut the defense budget much in the last 30 years. they just ordered new uniforms for their chauffeurs for the top brass. you know, this is going to be a lost opportunity if there's too much compromising going on here. i'm going to stick to my position we'd be off going over the cliff, the curb. it's a slope and not a cliff. i take krystal's point as
